We’ve got so much modern style and we didn’t even realize it

milo chairs

So my wife is browsing the Mass Modern auction (hat tip to Katherine) just hanging out, and a particular modern chair about to be auctioned off for top dollar sticks out at her. Okay, I should say it SLAPS her across the face.


Its a Milo Baughman lounge chair made c. 1960. The auction site estimeates it at 1,000-1500 dollars.

Why does the chair slap her in the face? We have TWO chairs that look almost exactly like this and we bought them for TWENTY dollars each at the Salvation Army in Downer’s Grove. Of course, at the time, we had no idea that they were knock-offs of a worthy chair.
